March 20, 2017
This week's top games list is highlighted by the Denver Nuggets and Cleveland Cavaliers, who battle in the the most expensive game in the NBA on Wednesday. It will be the Cavaliers' only stop at Pepsi Center this season, and tickets are going for big prices on the resale market. The Warriors, Thunder, Hornets and Mavericks will also host top-priced affairs through Sunday.
Take a look at pricing for this week's top games below, according to TicketIQ:
3/22/2017 Cleveland Cavaliers @ Denver Nuggets | Average Resale Price: $284.79 | Get-in Price: $66
On Saturday, LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love sat, as the Cavaliers lost by a whopping 30 points at the hands of the Clippers at Staples Center. However, Tyronn Lue started all three of them on Sunday, as they combined for 101 points in their 125-120 victory over the Lakers. Nuggets tickets on TicketIQ currently average $285 and the get-in price is $66, as the Nuggets look to get another winning streak in the works. They won a season-best four consecutive games before Saturday’s loss.
3/24/2017 Sacramento Kings @ Golden State Warriors | Average Resale Price: $266.79 | Get-in Price: $67
The Warriors are unsurprisingly popular this week, as they make a couple stops in the middle of the country before returning home for Friday’s contest against the Kings. Golden State heads into the week on a three-game winning streak while Sacramento has struggled mightily on the road recently. Warriors vs. Kings tickets currently start from $67 each and average $267, as Golden State looks to take the season series from Sacramento.
3/20/2017 Golden State Warriors @ Oklahoma City Thunder | Average Resale Price: $258.98 | Get-in Price: $43
The Warriors’ first destination of their quick road trip will be in Oklahoma City. Unfortunately for all parties involved, Steve Kerr’s squad will be without Kevin Durant, who remains sidelined with a knee injury. While Golden State is on its way to having home-court advantage through the playoffs, Oklahoma City is hoping to move up the standings to get home-court advantage of their own in the first round. Thunder tickets at Chesapeake Energy Arena currently average $259 and the get-in price is $43, as Russell Westbrook and company look to advance their winning streak to six games and avoid a regular season sweep at hands of the Warriors.
3/24/2017 Cleveland Cavaliers @ Charlotte Hornets | Average Resale Price: $232.25 | Get-in Price: $46
The Hornets have not been playing well in this calendar year. After having a winning record in October, November and December, Charlotte is in search of its first winning month in 2017. Hornets tickets on TicketIQ currently average $232, and the cheapest available tickets start from $46 each. As the Hornets look to right the ship, Cleveland is in search of sweeping the four-game season series from Charlotte.
3/21/2017 Golden State Warriors @ Dallas Mavericks | Average Resale Price: $219.65 | Get-in Price: $53
The Mavericks are fighting for a playoff spot, and they need a winning streak like the one that they put together at the beginning of the month. Unfortunately for Dallas, the Warriors are coming to town, and the Mavericks have yet to defeat them in two tries this season. Mavericks tickets on TicketIQ average $220 and the get-in price is $53, as Klay Thompson looks to again lead all scorers in a contest against Dallas.
